Silvio’s IGT Sangiovese Toscana is meant to be a lighter style of Chianti (that immediately ran afoul of the DOCG committee). Originally bottled in 2003, the wine was denied DOCG status for lack of color and the was subsequently failed for having too much color, a sure sign to Silvio that it was never going to be approved for DOCG status no matter what he did! The wine is essentially a tank wine made from younger vines that are picked earlier in the season than the other red cuvées, fermented on native yeasts in cement tank and aged only in concrete. Certainly not a simple wine, it is definitely a fresher style than Silvio's Chianti Classico. Bright red cherry fruit comes out on the nose with green herbal tones of sagebrush. The palate is light-to-medium with plenty of acidity and soft tannins. A serious wine that is nevertheless easy going. Try it with red sauce pasta, soft cheese, wilted greens, finger food or anything involving guanciale.  -Andy Paynter  // Andy covered everything, but we can confirm that the 2021 is a lovely vintage for the Sangiovese Toscana, a wine that is ready to drink and might be the most charming and light-on-its-feet Sangiovese in the shop.
